I wonder if we could also tie the uncork on Linux to the non-keepalive case
without making it too messy?  In other words, if we are doing a whole bunch of
keepalive requests, only uncork after the last one to minimize the number of
packets.  Maybe the uncork could be deferred until just before the socket
shutdown() or close().
